Hands-on Preview: Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger - Electronic Theatre

Ubisoft’s Call of Juarez franchise is surely the definition of ‘hit-and-miss’ when it comes to first-person shooters (FPS) on current-generation hardware. The well received initial title shocked a lot of gamers, and as such a sequel was rolled-out to critical acclaim. A third title, Call of Juarez: The Cartel took the interesting route of bringing the Old West thematic to a modern day drug squad with decidedly mixed results. Of course, given that the gameplay didn’t stand-up to the willingness to experiment with this third title, developer Techland’s ambitions have been curtailed prematurely, and it’s back to that original Old West setting for the fourth title.
